OOTD: Work Style

Hi everyone…I hope that you all are having a great week.  I don’t have much to say right now, I just took a quick break from work tonight to post this.  I wore one of my favorite skirts to work today and I paired it with a funky and stylish blazer from Coach.  So far everyday this week I’ve been wearing my traditional suits to the office, but today I wanted a little something different.  I love this accordion skirt, but I wish I paid a little more attention to the weather this morning.  As soon as I walked out of my building today, the wind picked up more than normal.  It was so windy that I almost had a couple of Marilyn Monroe moments without the NYC subway vents.  I walked to lunch and to my car literally tugging my skirt down just to keep it from flying up.  And of course this was the day that I didn’t wear a slip underneath.  Has this ever happened to you?  Let me know.

April Wish List – Top 3


As many of you know, lately I have been working like a crazy person.  I’m pretty bummed that I haven’t had time to work on my blog as well as run/work out.  I’ve been working anywhere from 10 to 12 hour a day and by the time I get home I’m just beat. I’ve been neglecting my blog so much that I just realized that I forgot to post my Top 3 list for the month. I finally went to Anthropologie last week and I have some favorites that I would love to buy if I made more money.  My absolute favorite Anthro piece right now is the Flared Caraz Dress.  Unfortunately, I didn’t have a chance to try it on because the store only had one dress left in an extra-small.  Have any of you tried it on?  What did you think about the dress?  Do any of you have any favorites that you can’t live without this month? Anyways, here are my top 3 items from Anthropologie for the month of April.

OOTD: Dreamy and Drapey


Hiya everyone!  I’ve been a little behind with everything in my life and unfortunately my little blog has been taking the backseat.  Recently, one of my co-workers left my office and instead of hiring a replacement, the management team decided to double my workload. I’ve been working a ton more hours lately, so by the time I get home from work all I want to do is shower, eat and go to bed.  My only sanity these days have been my races and working out at the gym.  I’m hoping that things will look up soon for me.  There is one bright side to me being exhausted, I’ve been able to sleep and dream of a better, happier tomorrow.  Have any of you taken on extra responsibilities at work in the past several months? How do you handle your stress from work?
